A trio of Front Mission Remake projects are coming to Switch
The initial remake (titled Front Mission 1st: Remake) is out in November (originally slated for “summer” of 2022), with the sequel coming “next year.” These were already announced. However, there’s also a Front Mission 3 project announced “for the future.”
Here’s a recap of what to expect from Nintendo: “You’ll pilot giant machines called Wanzers in tactical turn-based combat. As you progress, you’ll obtain Skills that can help you gain the upper hand against opponents. Continue the battle in the sequel, Front Mission 2: Remake, previously unreleased outside of Japan! Take advantage of additional features, like more terrain effects, weapon and armor attributes, and over 80 new skills. You can also test your mettle at the Colosseum and use the Network system to gain intel on events as they unfold.”
There’s no shortage of strategy games available on the Switch, whether it’s restored classics or brand-new projects. The third game, however, is really the one I’m waiting for. It’s one of my all-time favorite strategy games, and that box art is burned in my mind. I mean, it’s just a mech and a brown color scheme! But it stuck with me.
